She just says, "I'll be dead within two weeks." I remember her having said it before already (maybe from an earlier scene?), and I'm wondering why she has repeated it. But as the reality of what she's saying hits me, I get a brief pang of anxiety and that wakes me up. Sean: Tuesday 4.4.2017 at...

Pierre's video response to a set of questions from Adina via email: By what means / methods can we understand Enlightenment, our problems and experiences? What is the role of dreams? How can they be understood? Why is it important not to interpret them? What is the role of reflection? What is Ousia & the Logos? What is the meaning of Life? What is the Self? What is the Nature of Ultimate Reality? Does the Self need a Soul? Why is turning to the Self practical ? What is the function of True...
